Premier League clubs spent lavishly during the January transfer window and La Liga accused them of “cheating”, with action being demanded ahead of the summer.

La Liga officials have called for further regulation after accusing the Premier League club of “doping” and “cheating” with their record-breaking January outlay.

Top tier clubs in England were extremely busy during the winter transfer window and paid out a reported £815 million.

Chelsea – financed by the Todd Boehly fortune and Clearlake Capital – are by far the busiest team. The Blues have spent more than the Bundlesiga, La Liga, Serie A and Ligue 1 clubs combined, their latest acquisition being the English record-breaking arrival of Enzo Fernandez from Benfica.

In response to the Premier League’s exorbitant spending, La Liga president Javier Tebas shared a video on Twitter of the company’s general director Javier Gomez demanding that UEFA move to monitor far more business in the Premier League than the regulatory body was already doing.

“We are aware there has been a lot of talk about how La Liga’s control of the economy means Spanish clubs sign fewer than Premier League clubs,” he said. “Let’s explain what’s behind it. What is the truth? The reality is that in La Liga we want clubs to spend what they can afford and earn themselves, that is, their own income.

“It is true that shareholders are also allowed to support the club and put money into spending more than the club itself can generate, but within certain limits.”

He continued: “What’s the problem? Basically, they [the Premier League owners] ‘dope’ the club. They inject money that the club doesn’t generate to spend, which jeopardizes the survival of the club if the shareholders leave. In our opinion, it’s cheating, because it drags down the league. others down.

Chelsea are Europe’s highest spenders and signed Enzo Fernandez from Benfica

“That is our fight, to demand that UEFA implement new economic regulations that prevent club shareholders from putting in more than a certain amount and enforce these rules and penalize non-compliant clubs. It doesn’t matter which league or country it is, they must sanction those who don’t comply. club that doesn’t comply with these rules.”

While Chelsea were the highest spenders across Europe throughout January, a number of their Premier League rivals have also spent lavishly – even into the relegation zone. Bournemouth, Leeds and Southampton turned to the market in a bid to stave off the threat of falling to the Championship.

Interestingly, Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United were forced to accept a number of loans in January due to limited funds. They welcome Jack Butland, Wout Weghorst and Marcel Sabitzer on loan deals until the end of the season.

Despite not spending as much as their Premier League rivals, the Red Devils are planning a big summer splurge, which is likely to irritate La Liga officials once again.

Harry Kane has been linked with a move to Old Trafford while previous reports also suggested they are ready to renew their interest in Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong after failing to sign the Dutchman last summer.
